As part of her residency, Bowker will conduct research with non-anglophone student and faculty participants from Concordia to understand how they are engaging with machine translation with respect to scholarly communication and how it can be improved.
In addition, she will work with Concordia librarians to develop a workshop on machine translation literacy for the university community.
The Library’s researcher-in-residence program has as one of its goals to foster a culture of research. The program was created as part of the Library’s strategic plan, in order to promote research in the library and the use of research by librarians. The program offers the opportunity for scholars or doctoral students to focus on an area of inquiry in a supportive and enriching environment, and to interact with Concordia Library staff and resources.
